Oven Thermometer in my car with the window cracked.

Inside the car? Likely, but I couldn't give you statistics off the top of my head.
 
I'm going to do an experiment: leave car in the sun, windows up, with new thermometer and see just how high it goes.
Then, redouble my Oregon job search! LOL :-)

No kidding!

Have you looked at maybe Seattle instead? Better tech market there.
 
You can't go wrong with a town that has a rock museum, a science fiction museum, a wall covered with chewed gum, and a giant concrete troll holding a VW Beetle! 
 
It looks like flames at the moment, but I do have some. :-)
 
This is why I get mad at people that leave their dogs in their cars and defend the practice with "I had the windows cracked!" I think the new high end Audi's have a solar powered fan built into the roof that keeps fresh cool(er) air circulating through the cabin during the summer. A pretty nice feature!
 
I know of people dehydrating trays of fruit, or even baking cookies in their cars. It's certainly  no place for a pet!
The Aptera also had/has solar A/C to keep the interior a reasonable temperature.

Problem is, when the outside is already an oven, and the sun is beating down, no amount of fans will keep a 'reasonable temperature'.

If I faint, I hope someone calls an ambulance or takes me to an ER.
